Sorry for bringing this even further off topic since this list should
be about *developing* lynx, but you are being presumptuous trying to put
words into the mouths of people who use Lynx.
Lynx is the browser I use most from home (as I've said before, I use iCab when
at work, but also use lynx). However, to use some sites, I *must* modify
the user agent string.
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; really Lynx)" is the useragent I use in
an alias I have called "lynxnet". I use that when the standard useragent
doesn't work, such as for my bank and stock sites.
